real achievements in business, they show how he would try to run the country. they give us a look at what his tax policy would really be and what he believes in. mitt romney, i don't think, is making the case to the american people that he would be a president that americans can trust. it's all about the tax return. number one, i would like to know, how is he listed? general partner? president, owner? ceo? and then he signed it. i assume he signed his own tax return, even if he had somebody put it together, even if it's 500 pages. and the other thing is the business deductions. did mitt romney have any business deductions that dealt with bain capital? because if he did, he was flat-out lying to the american people when he said he had no n involvement. and maybe mitt romney has made the political calculation that it's just a heck of a lot safer and a hell of a lot easier to lie to the american people than it is to the internal revenue service. get your cell phones out, i want to know what you think. tonight's question -- this is a good one -- what will do more damage to mitt romney
romney started in bain in 1977. 25 years later, well, that takes us to 2002. according to mitt romney and his camp, the candidate didn't make any decisions for bain after 1999. he only benefitted financially from them. well, his campaign spokeswoman, ann degree yaw sall released this statement today. governor romney left bain capital in february of 1999 to run the olympics and had no input on investments or management of the companies after that point. another campaign aide told politico romney wasn't involved in any investment decisions. he was on the sec filings because he was still technically the owner, but just hadn't transferred owner ship to the other partners. well, history paints a very different picture. david corn of mother jones uncovered a february 1999 "boston herald" report about romney leaving for olympics. romney said he will stay on as part-timer with bain, providing input on investment and key personnel decisions. well, in july of 1999, romney was identified as the boss in a bain press release about the departure of two executives. bain capital ceow. -- willard, tha
"the new york times" about today's penn state disgrace. good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. it seems like only yesterday when mitt romney was on fox news talking about the political philosophy of responding to attacks. >> i, of course, respond to the attacks. but they say in politics if you're responding you're losing. >> romney and his campaign had a lot of responding too today. "the boston globe" expanded on the recording, only to find out that mitt romney was the top dog at bain capital three years after he said he left. according to the report, a massachusetts financial disclosure form romney filed in 2003 clearly stated he owned 100% of bain capital in 2002. and his state financial disclosures indicate he earned $200,000 as a bain executive in 2001 and 2002. the report also drops this bombshell, a romney campaign official who requested anonymity to discuss the sec filings acknowledged that they do not square with common sense. until now, romney laz protected himself politically from any bain business practices after he left the company. romney always says
harder at being what it claims to be, exactly the sort of person that makes us so wonderfully close to being as good as we say we are. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to the ed show. i'm michael eric dyson in for ed schultz. the president is opening a new line of attack. you people are going to love it. this is "the ed show," and as ed would say, let's get to work. >> we've given all people need to know and understand. >> the romney campaign says you people have seen enough taxes as the obama camp opens a new line of attack. >> it's wrong to ask seniors to pay more for medicare just so millionaires and billionaires can pay less in taxes. >> tonight, david k. johnston on the new questions about mitt romney's tax returns. karen finney and hogan on the frontal attack on mitt romney's vision for america. mitt romney picks up where john left off. >> i don't think the president, by his comments, suggests an understanding what it is that makes america such a unique nation. >> weighing
apart on this one. >> karen, i know a patriot who can afford to solve this whole problem for the u.s. olympic team -- mitt romney! he can afford to buy them all new uniforms, made in massachusetts or any home state he wants. >> how about that? l.l. bean could probably do them, right? >> karen finney, thank you very much for joining me tonight. >> thanks, lawrence. >>> "the ed show" is up next. >> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. 113 days before the 2012 election and the obama campaign has republicans clamoring for mitt romney's tax returns. tonight, i'll tell you what i think romney's hiding. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> governor romney's economic plan would, in fact, create 800,000 jobs. there's only one problem. the jobs wouldn't be in america. >> the president hits mitt romney hard on jobs and outsourcing, and mitt romney hits back at a former candidate's wife. >> john kerry ran for president, you know, his wife, who has hundreds of millions of dollars, she never released her tax returns. >> just how offtarget is the romney campa
repeal obamacare. let's get rid of the boss once and for all. >> good to have you with us. thanks for watching. the cloud of secrecy surrounded mitt romney's finances is refusing to lift. in colorado today, romney said president obama and the democrats are trying to avoid a real debate on the issues. >> the president the other day was kind enough to give me a call on the day that i cinched the nomination and he said i congratulate you and i think the country will benefit from an important and honest debate on the issues. and on the course for america, the future for america. and i think that's absolutely right. so far, his campaign hasn't started that. all they're doing is attacking on every diversion they can come up with. >> it's difficult for the president of the united states to have an honest and open debate with mitt romney when americans still don't know much about mitt romney and his finances. vice president joe biden explained why romney's double standard hurts him among voters during his speech to the hispanic advocacy group la raza. >> instead of answering the questions
, the romney campaign is using political hacks to dismiss these comicated financial issues. here's the rnc's shaun spicer on msnbc. >> a sterling example of romney who released 12 years of tax returns and said if less, it's ilustrative. >> there will never be enough for team obama. >> never be enough for team obama? really? well, don't we deserve more than just maybe one year of tax returns? romney's surrogates like this guy, prendz mitt romney has released all of his past tax returns. >> should governor romney release all of those tax returns? right now, he's in a unique position for a presidential cad dt he's only released one year. >> he's paid 100% of his taxes, complied 100% with what the law requires. >> i was asking if you think he should release them? not whether he complied with the law? >> i think he has released the tax returns. >> more of them. >> should he release them or not? >> no, i do not. most people don't care about this. governor romney has been very successful, get over it, it's a reality. >> we're over it, all right. he has been successful. we just want to know how su
's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. 111 days until the 2012 election, and mitt prromney is ready to dig up the dirt and go personal on the president. in the words of a former president, bring it on. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> he tries to divide america, tear america apart. >> they tested the waters yesterday. today, the romney camp is diving in. >> light our hair on fire then. >> they'll step up their personal attacks on the president to try to dodge the tax issue. i'll ask bob shrum and richard wolffe if it has any chance of working. >> to say that steve jobs didn't build apple computer or that bill gates didn't build microsoft or henry ford didn't build ford motor company -- >> mitt romney adopts the fox news lie about the president's small business comment. >> a lot of people were waiting for that to come out. >> and then agrees with the full context otthe president's comment on small business. >> by the way, there are a lot of people in go
we'll look back at the life of andy griffith. good to have you with us. thanks for watching. millions of americans are going to be traveling over the next few days and we're going to by wi buying a lot of gas. republicans wanted to celebrate the fourth of july by hammering president obama over rising gas prices. it isn't working out the way they hoped. today, the national average for a gallon of gasoline is $3.33. it's the lowest price per gallon since last december. over the last three months, gas prices have fallen from a national high of $3.92 back in april. in some southern states in this country, the average cost is already below $3 a gallon. all of a sudden, what's that noise? i can't hear it. it's because the republicans are all of a sudden quiet about energy policy. you see, they were making all kinds of noise about high gas prices back in the spring. leaders of congress, the presidential candidates, and the right-wing media all over this president, saying he's the problem. putting the blame on president obama. >> since this president has been president, the cost of
to be president. what does the romney camp do? they use one of their most winning surrogates, ann romney, because she's been far more likable than her husband on the campaign trail, but listen carefully to the first part of ann romney's explanation of why no more tax returns should be released. >> you know, you should really look at where mitt has led his life and where he's been financially. he's a very generous person. we give 10% of our income to our church every year. do you think that's the kind of person trying to hide things or do things? no. he is so good about it. then when he was governor of massachusetts, didn't take a salary in the four years. >> listen, giving charitable donations, however commendable, has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not a presidential candidate should release tax returns. they are two different issues. ann romney suggesting that this means mitt romney isn't hiding anything is, with all due respect, a ludicrous argument. mitt romney not taking a salary as governor is also totally irrelevant to the issue. here's the second part of ann romney's answer. >>
in business. they show how he would try to run the country. they give us a look at what his tax policy would really be and what he believes in. mitt romney, i don't think, is making the case to the american people he would be a president americans can trust. it's all about the tax return. number one, i would like to know how is he listed? general partner, president, owner, ceo? then he signed it, i assume he signed his own tax return, even if he had someone else put it together. and i'm sure he did if it's 500 pages. and the business deductions, did he have any write-offs or any business deductions that dealt with bain capital. if it did, he's flat out lying to the american people who he said he had no involvement. the irs think it's involvement. and also, maybe mitt romney has made the political calculation that its jr. ostheck of a lot safer and a hell of a lot easier to lie to the american people than it is to the internal revenue service. i want to know what you think. tonight's question, this is a good one, what will do more damage to mitt romney's campaign, releasing his tax returns or
, this is a guy who admitted to cocaine use, had a sweetheart deal with his house in chicago and was associated and worked with rod blagojevich to get valerie jaret appointed to the senate. there will be counter attacks. now we understand why romney attack dog john sununu went on fox news and called obama a pot head from hawaii. >> he has no idea how the american system functions. wetient be surprised about that because he spent his early years in hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in indonesia. >> drug use, allegations, and tony resco, all that stuff, they're not the only old tricks pulls from the hat. joe arpaio was putting birtherism back in the news cycle. >> we believe that the certificate presented to the american public by the white house is a forgery. >> well, sheriff joe isn't part of the romney campaign, but that didn't stop romney surrogate donald trump from tweeting today. as i always said, the birthers were after the truth. thanks to sheriff joe. they're banking that they're not going to believe or know who the president of the united states is and they have some
. >> we're going to need a bigger boat. >> good to have you with us. president obama has put the issue of tax fairness front and center in this election. speaking in the east room of the white house, the president asked congress to immediately extend the bush tax cuts for those making less than $250,000 a year. >> the republicans say they don't want to raise taxes on the middle class. i don't want to raise taxes on the middle class, so we should all agree to extend the tax cuts for the middle class. let's agree to do what we agree on. right? >> now, i'm going to show you some numbers in a few moments. you can be the judge because this puts the republicans on the spot. they have to take a position on supporting middle class tax cuts without an equal tax cuts for the wealthiest of americans. the romney campaign believes the best way to deal with the announcement is to say the president is raising taxes. president obama's response to even more bad economic news is a massive tax increase. here's the problem with the romney camp's statement. it is blatantly false. but they think the head sh
to take us back to the economic policies of george w. bush, or president obama who has led to 28 consecutive months of job growth. as a former governor of massachusetts said, it takes a while to get things turned around. it takes longer when one party doesn't want to turn things around at all. where want to know what you think. are the disappointing job numbers because of president obama's policies or gop obstruction? text a for president obama's policies, text b for gop ubstrugz to 622639. or go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. i'll bring you the results later in the show. i'm joined by richard wolf. richard, have republicans boxed in president obama by preventing any jobs legislation from passing? they have been clearly obstructionests. >> they have, and they have from the start, but you know, you get tactical success, that doesn't mean that you're dealing with the problems you're elected to solve or in fact you're going to win strategically in political terms. i would like to draw a comparison in events we felt strongly about which was in the bush administration, 9/11. we went thr
this have such an impact on us is because we can all understand what it would be to have somebody that we love taken from us in this fashion. i confess to them that words are always inadequate in these kinds of situations. >> the president also visited with those who survived the deadly rampage. but has no plans to pursue tighter regulation and oversight of existing gun laws. mitt romney agrees. >> i'm a firm believer in the second amendment, and i also believe that this is with emotions so high right now, this is really not a time to be talking about the politics associated with what happened in aurora. >> in sharp contrast, new york mayor michael bloomberg is criticizing both men for their lack of leadership on this issue. >> how anybody can run for the highest office in the country where 48,000 people are going to get killed in the next four years and not have a plan. people say, well, you shouldn't address it now because we're in a time of crisis and mourning. yeah, well 18 months since arizona, and we did nothing. if not now, when are you going to do this? >> tonight, james holmes re
serves us in the white house. "the ed show" starts right now. >> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. 102 days before the election and the obama campaign has republicans clamoring for mitt romney's tax returns. i'll tell you what i think mitt romney is hiding. >> governor romney's economic plan would in fact create 800,000 jobs. there's only one problem, the jobs wnt be in america. >> the president hit mitt romney hard on jobs and outsourcing and mitt romney hits back at a former candidate's wife. >> john kerry ran for president. his wife who has hundreds of millions of dollars never released her tax returns. >> just how off target is the romney campaign? richard wolffe and rick tyler on romney's ongoing disaster. >> and we'll look at the real life impact of mitt romney's outsourcing. ♪ oh beautiful for spacious skies for amber waves of grain ♪ >> the big panel weighs in on one of the toughest ads a democrat has ever produced. >> and the young guns are calling him the backup. >> young guns, a new generation of conservative leaders. >> we'll tell you why bil
's policy has been to drive up the cost of energy so americans would use less of it. >> president obama was even asked about this conspiracy during a live news conference in march. >> critics will say on capitol hill that you want gas prices to go higher because you have said before that will wean the american people off fossil fuels onto renewable fuels. how do you respond. >> just from a political perspective, do you think the president of the united states going into election wants gas prices to go up higher? is there anyone here who thinks that makes sense? >> no sense at all, but right wingers still repeated it as long as gas prices were high. if the gas bags paid any attention at all to the actual economic reports, they would have known how far off base they were. in the beginning of may, economists were reporting gas prices had peaked at $128 a barrel. the trend was already moving in the other direction, but of course, republicans continued to blame the president for having sinister motivations. remember, the keystone pipeline, son of a gun, we can't get low prices unless we have
's get rid of all guns in america. i grew up in a very rural part of america where people use guns for hunting and that sort of j right to bear arms, people have a right to not bear arms and also feel safe. that's the question we must ask ourselves, how do we balance those two rights. >> i got someone on my twitter feed today who says he's never agreed with me on anything and he came to an agreement with me after a few exchanges about more regulation and control of ammunition sales, which is where i'd like to see some focus of the future conversation on this. charles, thank you very much for joining me tonight. that will have to be "the last word." "the ed show" is up next. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show." i'm michael eric dyson in for ed schultz. today, we got our first look at an alleged killer. but we're still looking for politicians who will step up to cut down the violence. this is "the ed show," and as ed would say, let's get to work. >> we haven't had the head of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms because the president can't get anybody through congress. w
by howard fineman. great to have you with us tonight, howard. >> hi, ed. >> you know, the president has to win the middle class to get re-elected. let's operate on that premise. does this issue win the middle class? >> i think the republicans and democrats inhabit different universes. mitt romney's really being run by that 10% that you showed in the poll, the 10% who think the taxeso on the rich are too high. those are the people running his show. and from the republican strategist point of view and i talked to one today, they think anytime they yell tax at barack obama, they have a winner. he's a tax razor, a tax raiser. >> the white house answer to that is going to be mitt romney is republicans are out to screw the middle class and they're not using the tax code in the best possible way to create jobs. because if you talk to economists and i have, fair minded ones, not raging liberals, fair minded ones, they will tell you that cutting taxes on the wealthiest americans while it might create some jobs, is certainly not the most efficient way to use the tax code to create jobs. as a matt

'll bring you the results later in the show. joining us is former governor of new york, george pataki. welcome to the show. >> nice being with you. it was wonderful to hear that objective, neutral introduction to the segment. >> of course. you know that we try our best to please you, sir. but look, in all honesty, i'm going to present a series of questions to you that are meant honestly, you and i have known each other for years. >> right. >> you sat and listened to one of my sermons. >> a terrific sermon. >> you're a good man, but i'm just here, those of us on "the ed show" and in the audience are trying to figure out the sense of contradiction and conflict. we're not trying to be nasty, but we want to ask questions and you're a smart guy and you can answer them. i want to play the boehner sound once more. >> okay. >> government doesn't create jobs. >> now, governor, he's not alone. in september of 2009, senator jon kyl of arizona said, i had hoped that president obama by now would understand that even more government spending doesn't create jobs. but just recently, kyl said this abo
finney and "huffington post" political reporter sam stein. i thank all of you for joining us here tonight. >> glad to be here. >> so this is huge. senate republicans were outmaneuvered and now house republicans are the only ones standing in the way of a middle class tax cut extension. do you think democrats might campaign on this bob? let me throw that to you. >> oh, i think they will campaign on it. i think democrats are going to be out there all the time talking about who's the party who's standing up fighting for the middle class, and who's the party who's going to fight a last-ditch battle to give away the most to the people at the top. i think that will be central to this campaign. >> so look in speaking to the daily telegraf about president obama's new tour of great britain, a romney spokesman described why he would be better. he says the white house didn't fully appreciate the shared history we had. after we hear from the president, i'll pick up about why we think it was wise or unwise for romney's advisers to raise the clearly irrelevant factor o
